Our Investment Thesis

We invest in early-stage American and European startups engaged in b2b/b2b2c SaaS or edutainment.

We lead the rounds of the most interesting companies where our value add as mentors, coaches and advisors is maximal, but we are happy to follow the investors we know too.

The planned investment horizon is 7 to 10 years, the expected weighted average multiplier is 3,5x, our remuneration is either 10% fee of the purchase price + 20% carry case-by-case or 30% carry case-by-case without the management fee.

The investment structure for our members is either direct investment or syndicate based on each particular deal conditions.
